Welcome to Syracuse Speaks, a podcast for Field Pass Hockey!
Now in its fifth season, Syracuse Speaks aims to cover the Syracuse Crunch, its organization, and the AHL from the stands. Host Alexandra Ackerman has been covering Syracuse on the internet since 2008 and desires to share her passion for the team and the league with her listeners.
In this episode, recorded October 23rd, 2022, Alex recaps the start of Syracuse’s season, specifically emphasizing the organization’s 29th Home Opener on October 22nd. She highlights the tenacity and grit the 2022-23 edition of the team has shown so far, including the performances of newcomer Felix Robert and veterans Daniel Walcott, Darren Raddysh, and Alex Barre-Boulet. Alex breaks down the sights and sounds of the packed home opener for the organization, including a description of the opening hype video and how the Crunch highlighted their relationship with the Tampa Bay Lightning. She describes how the team emphasized their ties to the community with their player introductions and how they incorporated their players’ children into that part of the night.
Alex then looks at the team’s upcoming three weeks, including their potentially challenging trip down to Charlotte. The Checkers are doing very well so far this season. She also shines a light on the Crunch’s upcoming Pink in the Rink night and the other events the team has planned during that time.
